Teaching & Learning 

Place Materials on Course Reserve

Items such as books, journals, and videos that are selected for use in a particular course are placed in the Course Reserve section of the Library. The loan period for these items are limited to allow more students to access the materials. 

The Librarians are also able to assist with finding materials to make available to students in alternative ways. Arrange for a consultation with a librarian if you would like to know more. 

Request a Course Subject Guide 

These online Course Subject Guides are created by the librarians, in collaboration with faculty, and tailored to the course’s requirements. The aim is to help students discover quality resources that are relevant to their course and to develop the information literacy skills. The guides may be accessed from the Library website or within the course module on the learning management system.

The Course Subject Guides:

  • Link to electronic and print materials for course reading
  • Highlight research tools such as databases and websites relevant to the subject
  • Provide instructions and tips on conducting efficient and effective research
  • Guidance on citation styles and creating bibliographies and reference management tools like Endnote and Mendeley  
  • Give quick contact links to the Library for assistance.
